This episode may be a bit dry, but its very educational! The ladies discuss this summer's American Library Association conference and how is may or already has affected their careers as publishers.

Sep 9, 2016

Note: This episode was recorded way back in January, and it shows.

 

In this new episode we talk PACING comics... aaaaand other things, since we were terrible and had a hard time staying on track, lol. 

Sep 1, 2016

Note: This episode has a special guest, Amanda's cat, who yelled in the background in a way that couldn't be edited out. She has a lot of important opinions about comics, y'all.

Today's episode is about doing comics Full-time vs Part-time, pros and cons of both, and our experiences. Plus we dunk on some dumb fallacies, and reveal ourselves to be the worst girl gang.

Production note: For the first 10 minutes, Spike sounds like she's in a tin can. This is a problem we've since fixed, but there was no way to up the quality this time. Sorry!

We're back! For real! In this episode we answer some listener mail and talk about, among other subjects, pitches, taxes, impostor syndrome, and a subject of seething, passionate disgust.

See you next week! Also be sure to see Amanda and Kel at Vancaf!

In this episode we loosen our ties and get comfy while we talk about taking care of yourself, at home and at conventions. Should you bathe from head to toe in lemon-scented antibacterial hand sanitizer? The jury is split.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today's episode is about making and selling merchandise, specifically with conventions in mind.

Mentioned in this episode:

Some behind-the-scenes for this episode: Spike was late to recording, so when we started, Amanda was high. That's why they are both fired. We had a good run!

... but for real, see y'all in 2016 with more episodes!

Dec 22, 2015

Come, friends, listen to us informally shoot the shit about scripting comics, featuring special guest host: Amanda's barely-audible but no-less-distracting cat, Meato.

Dec 21, 2015

In this episode recorded around October, we discuss DISTRIBUTION, from shipping inventory out of your bedroom to getting a graphic novel into major bookstores. 

Sep 12, 2015

In this week's episode we break down this "MY BRRAAANNDDDDD" thing we're always croaking about, what it means and how we apply it practically.

Aug 26, 2015

In this casual episode we talk about fatigue as a comicker, and how it's pretty much inevitable at some point. We discuss our lowest points, grumpy convention stories, and the highlights that make it worth it.

Aug 18, 2015

We're answering listener mail! Our rambling spans across commissions, Chinese New Year, Kickstarter fulfillment companies, our gross desks and how Spike tortures us with recipes.

Aug 5, 2015

Prepare to hear us gurgle-hiss the phrase "MY BRAND" multiple times like withered little comic witches as we discuss selling at conventions

Mentioned in this episode:

Further listening: If you're interested in the perspective of organizing conventions, and a large publisher's convention experience, check out the episode of Inkstuds called "The Butcher, The Brothers and The Brandon."

Gather 'round the campfire with Amanda, kids, cuz Gramma Spike and Aunt Kel are gonna tell us horror stories of (web) comic publishing, and maybe even how to avoid reliving the nightmare yourself.

In this episode, we talk about our varied experiences in art education, the lessons we learned and how we've applied that to our careers. Also the ending's editing is a bit raw to keep in tact that chaos that recording with Spike can be.
